[Home Network] | V | [Linux Box, w OpenVPN, Internal, External is DHCP from ISP] | V | [Internet] | V [My MX box, static 130.241.25./32]

Bascially, I want my hone network to be able to talk to the external MX-box, and vice versa.

But I can't find a scenario with an example that seem to suit my task at
hand, is this doable? And how? Any pointers?

Sure it is doable.

You set up a openvpn connection with static IP address inside the VPN.
Then you just enable routing on both OpenVPN computers. After this you
can just tell the routers how to reach the network on the other side. Hint
setup a route with a gateway address of the static ip address of the other
end of the OpenVPN tunnel.
